Resources about CVI

The absolutely essential text for learning about CVI  is Cortical Visual Impairment: An Approach to Assessment and Intervention by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy from AFB Press.  Dr. Roman created the only assessment tool for CVI currently available.  She stresses that improvements are expected for children but not without parent involvement, careful assessment around the 10 characteristics, and the careful creation of strategies built from assessment results.  Then and only then will children’s current visual skills be supported and improved.



  1. Have you been able to read the Vision and the Brain from AFB press? Its newly released and I am wondering whether or not to purchase….


  2. It is fairly expensive so I hope to borrow it from the library. It is reviewed in the Journal of Visual Impairments and Blindness this month so you might want to check that out before buying.
